Manchester United vs Leicester City preview

We take a look ahead to Saturday’s Premier League clash between Manchester United and Leicester City at Old Trafford.

United have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the visit of Craig Shakepeare’s side. Jose Mourinho is likely to stick with the side that won the opening two games of the season. United continue to be without England international pair Luka Shaw and Ashley Young, who both appeared for the club’s development side this week, whilst the re-signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic and defender Marcos Rojo remain sidelined due to knee injuries.

Leicester City:

Craig Shakespeare should be able to call upon captain Wes Morgan and striker Jamie Vardy who suffered back and foot problems respectively during the foxes’ victory over Brighton. Danny Drinkwater, Papy Mendy and Kelechi Iheanacho have all returned to training this week but Shakespeare is reluctant to rush any of the trio back, knowing that Saturday’s game is followed by an international break.
